's overwhelming popularity of latino men and women. and i don't include this on the table, but there is a gender gap among the 10 catholics. the two men are less likely to support obama and women but generally speaking the vast majority of latino men are supporting obama. what's driving this is immigration. for latino voters the economy was the first issue most important, but immigration was a close second. roughly one in for latino voters said in the state immigration was their major reason for going to the poll. you can see how that is going to be benefiting barack obama in this election. interestingly while why catholics are more likely to vote for romney overall. they're still a gender gap. respect to the views on abortion, health and human services birth control method, religious freedom and the culture of dependency, it appears the bishops vocal opposition to the health and human services mandate is not something most dashing most catholics from supporting. at least when supplied to catholic hospital or universities. only a slight minority of catholic women and men support the health and h

the voters who are already obama voters, so people like latino voters who lean obama but might not vote anyway, they're trying to get them energized to go out and vote. union voters. then women who are already leaning to obama. the second point is to get early voters out to the polls because that's where the obama team feels like their machine, their ground game, actually makes a difference. they think they have the numbers. the question is can you get them there on election day, if not, get them out early. that made a big difference in 2008. they're trying to do it again this year. then you mentioned women voters. this is where they think the margin of difference can come in. there are a lot of undecided women voters, they think a margin of them and they trying to turn them at the very end, one way they are going to do it, bill clinton is hitting the trail with the president next week on monday. the first time the two men will stump together, going to three battleground states. we'll see that effort in action next week, anderson. >> jim, gloria, jessica, thanks. let us know what you th
to go until the elections, we're taking an in-depth look this morning at the effect latinos could have on election dame you know that saying there's power in numbers? well, latinos have exactly that. according to the latest census, there are more than 50 million latinos in the u.s., and of those, more than 12.2 million are expected to show up at the polls on election day. that is just over half of latinos who are eligible to vote. joining me now, as they do every week at this time, cnn contributor maria cardona and amy holmes, anchor of "the real ne" on the blaze. good morning to both of you. maria, how critical is the latino vote in swing states like florida, for example? >> it's very critical, randi, and especially in this close election. we saw already the latino vote being decisive. in 2008, president obama would not have been able to turn florida, new mexico, colorado, nevada, would not have been able to turn those blue and win the election had it not been for the latino vote. in 2010, latinos basically saved democrats from losing the senate, and harry reid says this all the time.
, and it's still the case, blacks and latinos are always sort of brought into that cue, but the cue was so big this time in terms of the entrants into the labor market some 873,000 new people -- more people employed, and so that obviously created more jobs for blacks and more for hispanics. >> we know the growth rate is still pretty weak. it's only at 1%. how does the economy actually grow? how does it become more healthy? >> i would expect that next quarter around it will be much greater. it's 1.3% now, but the signal that is we're seeing now, those signals will play out, and the thing that we've been saying for months is that the economy has not been slowed because lack of profitability. in fact, corporations have been experiencing record profits. they have record amounts of cash. we have record low interest rates. so all of the conditions for growth have been there, and so what we're seeing now happening is that they're beginning to materialize. >> finally, there's always the political aspect of all of this, and there's some conservative who's say, look, you know, we think you're fudgin
is not making the call. the booker decide in many cases who comes on. >> in 2009, the naacp, the national latino media council signed the memorandum of understanding with abc, nbc, cbs and fox. we needed to know who was working in front of and behind camera. we have something on out. has there been progress? yes. incremental. we have to push harder because of what came out of here. this is a report and what he did, he interviewed 900 people on what the thought about latinos. 3000 people on what they thought about latinos. they were all white people. what they thought coincided with what news did looking at. we put into timid in their, television news, radio and journalism. if they were young and new atinos, they tended to have good attitude about latinos. they were older and watching fox news, they did not think very highly of us. the beer not patriotic, not intelligence, that we are taking jobs away from americans. 30% of them thought that it% or more latinos were here without documentation -- that 50% or more latinos were here without documentation. we are 55 million strong in this country. 12

to break. they will talk a lot about appealing to women, appealing to latinos. throughout the course of the 2012 campaign, we have heard a lot about the strategy of appealing to women and latinos to eke out a victory for democrats. host: where are the traditionally democratic and republican areas of the state? guest: denver and boulder tend to be democratic. the fifth biggest county for democrats with voter registration is el paso county. that is typically viewed as sort of a republican stronghold, and it is. increasingly, we have seen the ski area communities start to turn democratic. host: a lot of headlines and focus on early voting in this presidential contest. does colorado have it? guest: we do and we have mail in voting about two million people voted early absentee in the 2008 election. that is expected to grow to two 0.5 million this election cycle. keep in mind that colorado has about 2.8 million active voters. about three-quarters of the vote should be conducted in colorado. host: on election day, how do people vote? guest: there are three ways, optical machines, scanning m
romney is trailing far behindn fr latino voters, and he made news on illegal immigration today. back in june, president obama announced that he would not deport illegal immigrants who came here as children with their parents. well, today romney told the "denver post": >> pelley: jan crawford is covering the romney campaign. jan, that's new. >> reporter: well, scott, this marks the first time that romney has said he's not going to take away the two-year visas from the people holding them. campgnrces say he's not going to extend them and romney said in the interview that's not going to be necessary because he's going to be ointerm immigr. but this two-year visa program is popular with hispanics, that's a group that could decide the election and romney's got to make up some ground. there's a new cnn poll that has the president with 70% of the vote among hispanics compared to romney's 26%. romney is hitting the president hard on immigration. he's saying he's playing politics with this issue, he's passing what he called a stopgap measure, this two-year program, instead of passing long-ter
to the african-american and latino communities, which make up half of youngstown's 70,000 residents. most traditionally vote democrat. at a restaurant, we meet a 36- year-old who has already cast his vote via postal ballot. he is back in barack obama for a second term. am i really do not think that one person could really come along and changed the whole country. plus, when you have that much of a mess to clean up, you cannot express -- expected to push a magic button and have everything better in four years. >> many voters are more cautious about getting behind the obama campaign this time around. the race is still wide open in ohio. >> finally, a sports exhibit with a difference -- we are all used to super slow-motion replays of sports matches that usually focus on tackles or amazing shots. >> but what if you approach a sport with the eye of an artist? one exhibit in berlin shows a different side of the german national team. >> a german and dutch player, fierce opponents dancing in step, acrobatics on the field caught in a split second. germany's defender with artistic arms. moments tha
are saying that romney must win florida to win the race. the southern state has a high percentage of latino voters as well as senior citizens, many of home are worried about their benefits. >> polls show the candidates are neck-and-neck. >> hold on tight. irene takes me on a fast pace tour of the retirement community in her golf cart. florida is home to many retirees, and a high proportion of them vote. i asked her if they are aware of their influence. >> well, you know, we have people in here 94, 93, 99. some of them are still pretty sharp, and then you have others who are not near that age that do not know what day of the week it is. >> most residents in the community have healthy finances and can afford to pay their rent and purchase a home here. that makes them more likely to lean republican. that is the case with irene, who has supported the republicans for over 60 years. but now, she fears that mitt romney may cut her social security and medicare benefits or privatize them. >> i have never been torn like this in any election, and that's the god's truth. i could have lied to you and sa
said that on occasion let me ask you about the latino vote. it's a powerful vote this year. you've got the latest telemundo number. obama at 70%. look at that number. i don't think any other community is like that. >> wow. >> 25% for romney/ryan. what is that about? is that about the attempt by the president to get into executive order? what is it? >> it's about the dream act, it's about being more progressive, about immigration. i'm the grandson of a greek immigrant who came to this country and had nothing. this is a time when america said, bring us your poor and tired and you'll have an opportunity to succeed and do well for you and your family, if you come to america and work hard and live by the rules. all of a sudden we hear from the hard right that we don't want people to come here. >> self-deportation? >> who talks about that? >> he does. >> govern for romney. >> that and the win for bil clinton in 1996 and john mccain told me that was the issue. that they just feel the assault from the republicans. >> well, arizona could be the surprise in on election night. charlie is right on
% of the vote among latino voters. african-american was like 95-4 or something like that and the poll has shown the african-american vote is rocksolid for the president and the numbers extremely high so lets let's just sort of assume rough parity with last time. but the question was, as you suggested the turnout levels among latino voters and i would add young voters very much questionable and when i have gone on campuses i cannot find a pulse. you saw a registration table registered to voters. there might be a couple of people behind the table to register people and nobody in front of the table registering. there's there is just no pulse there. is it safe to say that a seven-point margin becomes you know, six or five or four? sort of taking turnout down among these two groups? just by necessity this was going to be a lot closer. >> look in 2008, the president had to win this back. a seven-point margin for a democrat is big. that is a historic margin for a democrat. no, think all of us expected this to be a closer race. i think charlie the thing we should look for it now with early voting, we h
is a felony popped up in predominantly african-american and latino neighborhoods. prison sentence for voter fraud. likely targeting former felons that have a right to vote. clear channel, we are sitting in a clear channel studio. they announced that they would take down the billboards after the sponsor refuse today come forward. the company is donating 10 billboards declare voting is a right, not a crime. >> that's good. nice. >> stephanie: the judge ruled, pennsylvania we had a call yesterday, chris the judge ruled pennsylvania voters without photo i.d. could still cast a regular ballot. state sponsored ads have continued to tell residents they must show i.d. they are ads are on radio and it. v. and mailed to seniors via a precipitation trouble program. billboard targeting spanish speakers continues to misleadingly promote the i.d. requirement. and we have talked about this a lot. several -- excuse me, present ceos are pressuring their employees to vote for romney saying they may lose their job in obama is ele
the latino vote out there. i want to get your take on how well the republican party has done this time around. guest: i think they have done a lousy job. we have marco rubio out here. instead of taking him into the latino sections of las vegas, they take him out to green valley and anderson. we need to go to the latinos. we cannot sit back and expect them to come to us. the democrats have done a great job on this. they unions push their members who are predominantly hispanic to register and vote democrat. the republicans have not done that. host: is it too late at this point for republicans to get that vote? guest: i don't know if it is too late. we need to get latinos explaining to latinos why the republicans should be their choice. i start to see that. host: let go out to california on the independent line. caller: i think all american citizens should be protected. what happened in benghazi is our military was put on alert right away and our president made our military stand down and not protect american citizens because it is political. what is really going on? it is a new world order and
sanchez was part of history four years ago, urging latinos to help make barack obama president. it's different this time around. harder. >> some people are still very excited and others say, i don't know. well, i haven't made up my mind. >> reporter: less hype about the obama campaign this time, she says, and less hope about the candidate. >> it's a little bit harder because sometimes some of them say, well, i don't know who to vote for, these two evils. >> reporter: latinos were 13% of the vote in battleground colorado four years ago. and any dip in their support for the president or a drop in turnout could shift this classic swing state. >> this is one of his songs that's so moving and so powerful. >> reporter: evangelicals are to mitt romney what latinos are to barack obama. white evangelicals made up 23% of colorado's vote in 2008. >> think about life, think about liberty, think about character. and then cast your ballot. >> reporter: this pastor adds a plug to vote to every subd's sermon. >> the most surprising thing is the frustration of many of them with both candidates and
occurred. let's take a closer look at the sketch of this man. he's described as a latino man in his mid-20s, 5'10" with medium to heavy build. he was wearing dark clothing and a dark baseball hat at the time of the attack. police say last tuesday he was approaching by another man. officers say there was a struggle and they both fell to the ground. the victim was able to get away, went home and called 911. most people we spoke to this morning didn't know about the attack. while some were alarmed, others say it won't prompt them to change their route. >> only if it becomes prevalent do i work about it. >> reporter: but you won't strange your route? >> no, not unless there's some stronger reason. >> reporter: even if there was a stronger robbery and -- strong robbery with no represents used, police say this is rare. they say robberies and april estimated robberies just -- and attempted robberies just don't happen in mountain view. right now, i'm getting together the statistics to show how rare these robberies are here. right now, you can see nobody is on the trail. we've seen many joggers and
a memorial to caesar chavez, aid latino icon and founder of the american farm workers and he is doing this in california that is a blue state that you assume he shored up, but when you do something like this, there is a political calculation in this obviously. he needs the latino vote. it does tend to go for the democrat over a republican candidate by more than 2:1. it is a growing voter block and key in states like nevada, virginia, florida, and even north carolina. there is also that goes on. >> before i get to the foreign policy issue which i want to get to considering that's the theme of the day, first i want to get to the debate. he finally has come out publicly or at least in front of the audience that has become public and made fun of his debate performance and did it in front of 6,000 people. how did that go over? it did go over well obviously. he was in front of a ton of supporters. this is the first time and why it is interesting he was talking about his lackluster debate performance. here is what he said, this was last night in l.a. at a fundraiser, a concert before thousan
as of late show a strong trend towards mitt romney. host: what do you think about immigrants and the latino community? caller: they have always had a higher percentage of latino voters were voting for republicans than the other states. that is attributed to the elected leaders reaching out to the voters. historically they have had over 40% voting. president bush had over 50%. governor bush would get even 60% of the latino voters. this is not a typical state in terms of latina support. host: this story, immigration reform, the mitt romney softening stance putting of hard-liners. mitt romney, having to walk a fine line between latino voters and keeping his conservative base happy when it comes to cases like immigration. host: he can work on a bipartisan immigration bill that satisfies the conservatives. as the chairman of the american conservative union, i have a lot of input on the issue. basically, look, border security and law and order are key. conservative folks do not like the idea of the legal status in this country. -- illegal status in this country. the devil is in the details, of co
act. "we should not be seeing strong african-american and latino neighborhoods flipped into investror properties. it doesn't help families." in a statement, a bank spokesman said "we strongly deny nfha's allegations and stand behind our property maintenance and marketing practices. bank of america is committed to stabilizing and revitalizing communities that have been impacted by the economic downturn, foreclosures and property abandonment. we actively address the needs of such communities..." real estate brokers say the problem intensified when the housing bubble burst. the sheer number of foreclosures in minority neighborhoods has been hard to keep up with. "it's at the point when the owner leaves that it becomes vacant and trash gets dumped, people break in, steal copper." a bank of america spokesman turned down our request to elaborate on bank policy. he did point out that the group has held three news conferences on this subject in the last four weeks. hedge funds and other large investors continue to hunt for homes and apartment buildings. investment funds are taking advantage o
, and can the 50 million latinos we are here and we need to be incorporated and we are not invisible anymore and he invites latinos to be part of him and thinks administration and i think he should stay the president of today and the future. i really like president obama. >> skip, you have been undecided although you are a registered republican. the bay nets and horses thing, did that resonate for you? >> well, i think that they have both now evened their score snarkiness. i mentioned in a previous interview that governor romney edged in a little bit on the snarky side, and i think in this case so also did president obama. i think the fact of the matter is that the ability of our weaponry on the scene, the air, any other place, it is so far improved over what it used to be even ten years ago, that small numbers don't mean much. it is just we're so capable at this point of destruction and mayhem that a few ships can do today what 1,000 ships can do 15 years ago. >> okay. so you have been undecided through this long election season, 14 days to go, skip. have you decided? >> i am kind of moving
demographic groups in these final days. women, latino voters, and then, of course, getting out that early vote. soledad? >> and i'm sure that you expect to see more of all of this as we enter the final days. jessica yellin for us this morning. thank you, jessica, appreciate it. in a few moments, we'll be talking to congresswoman and dnc chairman, debbie wasserman schultz. she'll be weighing in on all of that. but first, john berman has a look at the day's top stories. >> all eyes on hurricane sandy, now starting to move into the florida straits. it slammed into cuba as a strong category 2 storm earlier this morning. two deaths now being reported, blamed on sandy. one in jamaica, another in haiti. meteorologist rob marciano is tracking sandy. rob, we want to know, is this coming our way. a powerful category 2 storm right now. >> in one way, shape, or form, it is. it's going to be a combination of things as we go forward. but first off, still a category 2 storm as it comes off the coast of cuba, into the bahamas. northerly movement at 18 miles an hour. 105 miles an hour sustained winds now. it w
to the number. hispanic and latino unemployment. quickly, if you look the at the graphic from 2008 to 2012 and you look at the difference here and the numbers as they're adding up. you're talking about 10% overall unemployment according to bls, in september of 2012. that's not sitting well in the hispanic community and the talk today to the executive director of the hispanic leadership network. >> hispanics are looking at the unemployment rate which has been stuck at 10% and above for the last 44 months, and saying, mr. president, where are the jobs? you campaigned heavily in 2008 to bring jobs back to the hispanic community and they're not there. >> bret: break down this thing into these sections, into numbers that are not great. >> that's right, and look, i think the romney campaign has a sense that it's making progress in its argument among hispanic voters and i would not at all be surprised to see an even more concerted push for the romney campaign to make precisely that argument on unemployment, on jobs, with the hispanic community in particular. >> bret: okay, next up, the friday lig
of this nation. as i got older, they reminded me of the clear truth. there were blacks, whites, latinos and asians. there were a gay folks and street books all marching for justice in america. they told me that you need to remember this from the beaches of normandy were there were black folks and white folks and gay folks. you need to remember this. when people were fighting to expand, it everybody involved. we knew we were all in it together. deep and real african proper was true. if you want to go fast you go alone, if you want to go far you go to together. so now it is time we go together. the dream of america is still just as urgent. this is still just as real. we are not finished with this nation yet. the word of our founders, liberty and justice for all, are still as operational as long as there is a person in this country that does not enjoy the same rights as their brother or their sister when it comes to voting rights, when it comes to marriage rights, when it comes to civil rights. when it comes to social security and tax law and visitation and adoption. as long as there are t
honeymooners? >> gretchen: what? >> you know what? i deplore in bough the debates not one mention of any latino issues. how is that? >> brian: that is unbelievable. that would -- >> or any urban issues. >> gretchen: interesting transition. but here we go. we should know today whether or not a body found in colorado is that of ten-year-old jessica ridgeway. police are having trouble identifying the body and here is the horrible part, because it is apparently not intact. jessica, that is, disappeared a week ago while walking to school on wednesday, a body was found in a park seven miles from where she was last seen. authorities will hold a news conference this afternoon. they plan to release more information then. >>> one month after ambassador chris stevens was murdered, the obama administration has named a new american envoy to libya. lawrence pope is the new man in charge. he will represent our country -- >> brian: you're getting better and better. >> gretchen: my french is coming back from high school. >> brian: i took german. >> gretchen: until the white house nominates a new one. he was an
think whoever is elected has no choice but to get this done. >> how about the latino vote? where does that stand now? and how is it that it feels like republicans have lost that vote when george w. bush owned it? >> he really did. i mean, by republican standards george w. bush did really well with the latino vote. jeb bush in my home state of florida when he ran for governor, he owned the latino vote. right now it's looking really bad for republicans. but again, that's part of the process of the primary where each republican tried to go further and further right on immigration and it was seen -- they were seen as being people who were bashing immigrants. even if they were trying to take a strong stand on illegal immigration. >> republicans have been accused of being obstructionist to this president's attempts at policy making. >> right. >> what's your thought on that? >> if only they could be as kind-hearted and giving and loving as democrats were to george w. bush. it makes me sad sometimes to think of how sweet nancy pelosi and harry reid were -- oh, wait a second. now they tried to
market in latino products. so in general, those things favor continued growth in our beer business. >> yeah, we asked half jokingly -- i'm hispanic, by the way. we asked half jokingly, do people drink more during a weak economy? it does seem intuitive that your business would be countercyclical. is it? >> we don't say that the business is countercyclical. it's not particularly cyclical. you know, what we like to say is it's not recession proof, but it is recession resistant. as a general proposition, we don't think people drink more or less, but what we really see in tough economic times is what we call channel shifting. what we mean by that is people tend to drink more off premise, meaning at home, than they do on premise, at restaurants, bars, and so on, where it's more costly to drink. that channel shift really doesn't affect us from a margin or profitability perspective. >> the jobs number that was out today, i don't know if you got a chance to see it. the unemployment rate below 8%. job growth a little anemic. does that mirror what you see in the consumption pattern of your bu
and professor of latin american and latino studies at the university of illinois in chicago. her books include "by heart/de memoria: cuban women's journeys in and out of exile" and "the lost apple: operation pedro pan, cuban children in the u.s., and the promise of a better future." professor, cuba has been a particularly tough place for its citizens to travel from, for some time. if you stay out of the country for more than 11 months you lose your right to residency. you lose your health care. is this a big change? >> i think it's a very significant change to the extent that this law, which was actually called the law of definitive abandonment, a very brave world, if you will, kind of description here. and the law prevented cubans from returning. initially it was actually 60 days. the 11 months comes much later. but in 1961 if you left for whatever reason and did not return within 60 days, you lost your home, your property, and your right to be returned to your family. so many families really have been divided by this law. now having said this, i think we need to really look at the overall co
